From the creator of Coronation Street comes a classic love story. Tony Warren, the man who invented Elsie Tanner and Ena Sharples now introduces a whole new gallery of unforgettable characters in a stunning debut novel. It is a story - spanning forty years - of a woman, and of a city. It is the story of Sorrel Starkey, destined to become one of the greatest television stars, fated to rise to the heights of fame and fortune, and to do battle with sorrow and humiliation. It is a story of joy, of hope and of human fallibility. Above all it is a love story you will never forget.
